Tuesday, Oct. 7, 4–5 pm

Sarah Lightman, award-winning artist, curator and researcher, will be the guest lecturer at Old Dominion University’s University Theater.

Co-curator of Graphic Details: Confessional Comics by Jewish Women, Lightman also edited the book of the same name. She is co-director of Laydeez do Comics, the only women led comics forum that focuses on autobiographical comics and drama of the everyday.

Her lecture, part of an annual week long celebration of literature featuring more than 20 artists and writers, promises to be of particular interest to the Jewish community.

Lightman’s artwork will be on display at ODU’s Gordon Gallery through October.
